She has done it again! Real estate phenomenon Matty Ma has been crowned the top sales consultant in New Zealand for the second year in a row.
Matty received her accolade at the 2014 Harcourts National Awards held this week at the Viaduct Events Centre in Auckland.
The Albany-based agent has experienced a meteoric rise in the real estate industry after immigrating to New Zealand 15 years ago.
Seven day weeks and a single minded focus on business have seen Matty achieve a remarkable $425 million in settled sales, with listings ranging from $300,000 to $55 million.
She has consistently placed in the Harcourts’ Top 20 chart over the past 10 years, winning the top spot three times, and has ranked number one in Auckland since 2008 thanks to her unrelenting work ethic and dedication to excellence.
Matty is also the 2012/2013 top sales consultant for Harcourts internationally, first out of 5,200 sales consultants across Australasia, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Fiji, South Africa and the United States. Her ranking for 2013/2014 will be determined at the International Awards next week.
Harcourts CEO Hayden Duncan says Matty works incredibly hard, usually seven days a week, and her success is very well deserved.
“Harcourts is full of incredibly hard working people, so you can appreciate just how special Matty is to win this award. Real estate is a very competitive industry and if you fail to perform, people will not give you a second chance. However, 95% of Matty’s business is repeat and referral – she is incredibly busy but she and her team give outstanding service to all her clients, not matter how big or small.”
Matty, who was a futures broker and journalist in China, has worked hard to establish excellent relations with overseas investors and new immigrants. Matty exhibited at the Shanghai Expo in China three years ago, as well as the Luxury Property Showcase in Shanghai last year.
She says she feels a big responsibility to represent Harcourts in the best way possible and she and her team go the extra distance for every single client.
Matty is also the country’s second top performing rural sales consultant, thanks to the many rural listings in the Albany area. The Albany office has also become one of Harcourts’ top national offices for revenue.
“I have four assistants who have excellent IT knowledge and we have good systems in place. We give our very best efforts to every one of our clients and that’s why we get so many referrals. I am often contacted about listings outside of Auckland, but I try to stick to the North Shore because that is where I know best and the place I can give the best service,” Matty says.
